Helpdesk: diesel hatch under Rs 9 lakh ?

04 Jan 2016 / 2

I have been waiting for quite a while to buy a diesel hatchback. I have finally shortlisted a few cars – Honda Jazz, Hyundai Elite i20, Maruti Suzuki Swift and the Toyota Etios Cross. My budget is Rs 9 lakh and my priorities are longevity, high ground clearance, good fuel efficiency, ride quality and low maintenance.

Of the cars mentioned, we recommend the Honda Jazz or the Hyundai Elite i20. Both cars offer a great set of features and most importantly, a fuel efficient and powerful diesel motor. However, the recently launched Maruti Suzuki Baleno offers a proven diesel motor, long set of first in class features and even matches your priorities.
